I’d like to welcome you to my blog by first wishing you a Happy New Year!

I’m really excited to about this blog, and the community I hope to build around it. My goal is to provide a wealth of information about the various aspects of firearms. I’m happy to be able to share my experiences with anyone who’s curious about firearms, especially women who are considering purchasing a gun but aren’t sure. I’m confident that a firearm, if kept and used safely and responsibly, will be a positive addition to your life.

Jessica’s Blog

This is where you’ll find posts that I’ve written. I’m going to focus mostly on handguns to start because that is what I have the most experience with, and I feel they are the best for self-defense.  You will also see articles on what you can expect to see at a shooting range, children and firearms, and my first experience at the range. I’ll also give you helpful tips to know before going shooting or buying a firearm, how to deal with having smaller hands, and other insights I encounter as my experiences grow.  I’ll also discuss the effect guns have on people’s lives, upcoming events, and whatever else I want. 😉

In The News

This section is mostly being done by my husband. It will feature articles from various news sources that pertain to women and firearms.  We think you will find these stories interesting and enlightening.


This is where you will find pages that contain more factual articles about firearms. Things like terms and different types of guns, their basic functions, shooting techniques, and gun safety.


This is where we will be adding product and/or service reviews. I’ll be talking about the pros and cons of different firearms, accessories, ranges, books, other websites, etc.

I hope that the articles posted here will encourage you to see firearms as tools that can be implemented for defense, sport, and that bring people together in a powerful way. I hope you had a Merry Christmas, and may your 2012 be spectacular!
